Those pointless preseason friendlies and the miserable Gold Cup are a thing of the past. They put a great ball in and Jamie Vardy does what he does best. The Frenchman saved the day as he popped up to score the victor on the 85th minute - just 18 minutes after being introduced for Mohamed Elneny . Improvements will have to be made, but for now, NA NA NA, NA NA NA NA, NA NA NA NA, GIROUD! His only substitute who didn't score was Theo Walcott, but what else would you expect from Walcott? ...
